Viveo Health is making its Virtual Office for Doctors platform at no cost to doctors and other medical professionals, in light of the global surge in demand for remote consultations due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The platform is compliant with GDPR, HIPAA and PCI DSS 3.2, and has a specially designed authentication feature for an additional layer of security. Doctors will be able to chat and have secure video calls with patients, using calendar views and notes that can be saved in the patient’s health registry.

Viveo Health founder and CEO Raul Källo said: “We have seen a vital opportunity to provide help during this crisis and offer our platform free of charge to ensure that doctors and patients around the world have access to virtual healthcare securely. With uncertainties around the future impact of coronavirus, digital healthcare will have an important role to play in not just months but years to come.”
